About Me

Welcome to my blog

I started this blog in April 2012 so I could join Challenges. I am now on some design teams. I hope you like my cards. I started stamping in 1995 but my cards are still mostly cute.
Thank you to those who have joined as followers and to those who comment.

Beccy's Place - a month of holiday cards - day 1

A month of holiday cards challenge has started at Beccy's place

Each day Beccy will give a theme and show a sample card.  Theme for card 1 is clean and simple
This is a great challenge.  I joined in last year and hope to do a card each day this year

Have embossed green card with Sissex thin ice embossing folder.
Printed Beccy's Place precoloured digi Angel with lights, cut out and layered onto green card.
Printed sentiment from Daydream Designs Rudy's sentiments, cut in half and layered on top.

I am still sick so was glad to have a simple theme for the first card.  Also it is very hot here in Sydney today.

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Addicted to Stamps and More - clean and simple
